This is an intensive investigation into many modes of painting and representation centering around human and animal forms, including anatomical studies, illustration, metaphorical and abstract painting, depictions of figure in exterior and interior space, and multiple figures interacting in the picture plane. Students will practice gesture drawing in each class, large scale painting, extended poses, foreshortening, and keep a sketchbook. Students will explore the content of the class with various types of paint, including watercolor, oil, and mixed media as well as drawing, using traditional and contemporary approaches.
